Mince pies!

Hi all,

As the festive season approaches I wondered if anyone knew anywhere in the bay where I might buy mince pies?

If I get any sent from the Motherland (UK) they will be crumbs by the time they arrive!

Where to buy the best NY-style cheesecake?

I think they make it in-house. Great for a party because they are inexpensive and huge!

Now don't shoot me, but have you tried the one CostCo make? I know it would make a died hard cheesecake fan cry, but it's dense, it's big, it tastes good and it's inexpensive!

Fresh Ghost Chilies

All great suggestions. I loved the idea of taking them to gun shows! Sadly all my friends are utter chili-phobes! I have enjoyed the Naga Morris but am now viewing this beautiful plant I have as some sort of Triffid!!

If anyone could point me to the recipes for chili paste or jam that would be tremendous!

Fresh Ghost Chilies

I have been lovingly growing ghost chilies and they have finally ripened. They really are as hot as wikipedia says they are. I tried one (didn't even swallow) and spent the next 30 minutes seriously considering a trip to the ER. I am no chili-wuss but these are mind-blowing.

Now I have dried ghost chilies already so I don't need more, but I am wondering what on earth to do with the 12 or so that are almost ripe. Apart from make some sort of deadly assault weapon!

Any thoughts?

Pastured eggs/free range eggs

Hello friends,

I live in Campbell and I want to find somewhere for breakfast where the eggs are pastured or at least cage free. Can anyone suggest somewhere?

I will travel anywhere in the SJ area!

Pastured eggs, Santa Clara County

Hi, I've just come across this post from way back. I'm in Campbell too and I really miss "proper" pastured eggs. I used to get them down in Santa Barbara, and can really taste the difference between supermarket free range and pastured from little farms full of scritch scratchy happy hens. Anyone got any suggestions where I might be able to go?

Home style northern Indian food in San Jose/South bay

It's was just so wonderful to get Exactly what i want. Now all I need to do is find a decent Indian grocery store. I went to India cash and carry today but although I got everything I needed it seemed a bit, well, grubby.

I'm a bay dining virgin! I have been here for about 6 weeks and so I am ready to get my curry hit. I'm not a fan of creamy curries or fish curries and I don't eat meat.

I adore curry and when go back to the motherland (the UK) I eat as much of it as possible. Now I'm in the South bay area and desperate for some good curry houses. I prefer northern Indian/Bangladesh/Pakistani food and I'm vegetarian so a good range of veggie dishes is a must. Love the Bhindi Bharjee, Brinjal Bhargee, Saag aloo and daal and the must have naan and poppadums.

Can anyone shoot me some recommendations please?

San Jose/Campbell area. Looking for a NON-child friendly restaurant.

hello fellow food lovers,

I am in Santa Barbara but spending a night next month in the Campbell area of San Jose with my better half. I would love some great restaurant recommendations for places which don't exactly welcome children with open arms.

We have a toddler and would really relish eating somewhere with table cloths!

We love all cuisines!
